Ever since July 2019, other NBA teams have been concerned about the Lakers landing the Greek Freak. Could you imagine LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Giannis Antetokounmpo playing together? They would be unstoppable.
Over the past several months, we’ve seen plenty of theories about why Giannis Antetokounmpo would or would not want to live Milwaukee. If he does decide to hit the open market, however, you’d have to think the Lakers have a decent chance of signing him.
While the Greek Freak has spoken about playing with his brothers before, he’ll presumably be more attracted to the Lakers’ overall status as a club. The general belief, which Shams Charania reiterated on “Load Management” is that Giannis wants to win more than anything; it’s hard to imagine a better situation to chase championships than alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, according to SportsCasting.

According to ESPN [via Yahoo], they are now willing to go into the luxury tax after avoiding taking the plunge so far during their rise with Antetokounmpo at the helm.
Basically, the Bucks have a series of contracts that will escalate year-over-year mainly Antetokounmpo, who is in line for a raise of nearly $1.7 million.
This could mean a trade for Giannis. Sounds possible the Lakers may nab him and reunite the Antetokounmpo brothers.
